Then, Corey and Brian will pick out a bunch of your questions and answer them during the show.
The large amount of snow fall in Buffalo, upwards of five feet in some places, has led the league to consider moving the Jets-Buffalo game on Sunday to a neutral site or move it to Monday (USA Today, Nov. 19)
The game could be played up north in Toronto at Rogers Centre.
The NFL will make the final call on whether the game will be played Sunday, moved or on Monday.
“We are working with the Bills to determine the status of the stadium,” the NFL said in a statement. “If a change to the schedule needs to be made, the league will make the decision, working closely with the club and local authorities.”
“No, practice is not overrated. It is not overrated at all. I think the most important thing you can do is practice. You have to get a feel for timing, new concepts, new things you may be doing and I think it is very critical. The last thing you want to do is miss a week of practice and come and try to play. I’m not saying that it can’t be done, but I just know how important it is.”
-Michael Vick, on Buffalo not being able to practice and if it’s “overrated”
S Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf) and CB Darrin Walls (calf) were both limited in practice on Wednesday.
Eleven other players — including RB Chris Ivory (shoulder), RB Chris Johnson (knee), G Willie Colon (knee) and C Nick Mangold (shoulder) — appeared on the injury report, but were all full participants in practice.
Leger Douzable joins the the panel to discuss the Jets including quarterback Michael Vick and the team’s upcoming game against the Bills.
At 2-8 and six games remaining, the Jets will have to take each one at a time.
“We have six one-game seasons,” Head Coach Rex Ryan said. “That’s kind of how we look at it.”
The Jets play Buffalo coming off their bye, the Dolphins twice, Minnesota, Tennessee and the Patriots over their next six games.
“We have to play a zillion times better than the last time we played Buffalo,” Ryan said. “I think that’s safe to say.”
Michael Vick will start Sunday, his third start of the season. In his first start, against Buffalo, he turned the ball over three times.
“Playing against Buffalo the first time, we knew what we were getting into,” Vick said. “This time around, hopefully we can come out there and do things differently. We have to protect the football.”
The Jets are still mathematically alive in the playoff hunt, but would have to win every single game and have a lot break their way to get into the postseason.
“We want to try to win every one of them,” Vick said. “We have the opportunity to do some good things.”
